Attaching a flagpole

I'm just wondering where the best spot to attach this flag pole holder to my trailer would be. The flagpole is a 6 ft aluminum spinner pole and the flag is 57"x27"

Doesn't matter where you put it... that mount will never hold up. It'll snap like a dry twig the first strong wind that comes along. Too long of a pole, too large flag.

I use a 15' telescoping flag pole bungeed to my ladder. Works like a charm for ~$20.

I've been impressed with the way mine has held up here on the beach at South Padre Island...

I have the same flag and mount as you. I mounted the mount on the side of the trailer and through-bolted it. The bolts with washers are just above the floor in our bedroom and doesn't look bad.

I ended up using two muffler clamps and clamped it to the electric jack stand. Holds nice and tight and the flag is always out front where everyone can see it.

I built one of these and put it under one of my 6 point leveling legs, works great with a 22' flag pole
